Lio by Mark Tatulli

We got Lio Making Friends during the week in the library and it has been in someones hands ever since. Here is one brother waiting for the other one to finish it.
Its graphic, but not a graphic novel, as its not all one story but a series of comic strips about Lio (sorry, I can't find the right key to do that thing over the O) who has a pretty dark sense of humour. We all like dark here, so that's a good thing. I don't think it's really about making friends and it has no dialogue and the minimum amount of words, but listen, its not on a screen and you need to use more than a thumb to turn the page. I think its really great. Here's what happens when he loses a tooth.

That's one of the longer stories, some of them are just two pictures, but they are all pretty funny. At 224 pages, its a pretty nice deal for under eight euros. I'd say its good for ages 8 and up. An interest in the macabre a plus.
